Yes! I'm so glad, too... there's so much I'd like to post on FB that's widow related but it seems too depressing to share with the rest of the free world. For instance, is it a symptom of widowhood to become a manic-depressant? Never been diagnosed, but my ups and downs have been so extreme lately that I'm beginning to wonder! =S
